AMERICUS, GA (WALB) – Sumter County was pounded with heavy rain Monday night. Lamar Road and South Georgia Tech Parkway in the northeast part of county were closed because they were covered with water. Nearly ten residential streets were also shut down. One Sheriff's Deputy said, "Due to the extreme amount of rainfall right now we're having water in areas we haven't had trouble with water crossing the roadway before."

The Sheriff's Office will continue to monitor the situation throughout the night. They encourage people to stay off the roads tonight.
